An example of an ancient Egyptian ship, described by Herodotus as being built like a brick wall has been found. Better yet, an (expensive) monograph on the wreck is coming out soon. In the US at least we have "interlibrary loan", where your local library can get you a copy of just about anything.
A sunken ship found in the Nile river may have lain undisturbed for over 2,500 years, but now it is finally ponying up its secrets. Scientists think that this ship has revealed a structure whose existence has been debated for centuries.
